Vacation Recap (Part II) | Las Vegas

March 22, 2016

Vegas or Paris?
Don't forget to read Part I here!

Lake Tahoe was lovely, but this was my last spring break, so I knew I had to go out in style. And since I did Mexico last year, what better place to party it up than Vegas?

Drinks at the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan
Wearing Forever21 dress and Rebecca Minkoff purse
We landed around 9pm from Reno, and since we were still exhausted from skiing, we decided to take it easy the first night and just get a taste for Sin City. Our hotel was conveniently attached to the Cosmopolitan, so we got some drinks there and called it a night relatively early (as in, in bed by 1am).

Our first plates of many at Bacchanal
Window shopping at the Forum Shops

Watching the fountains outside of the Bellagio
The next day we ventured over to Bacchanal at Caesar's Palace for a glorious feast truly fit for the gods. I ate cheeses, prime rib, lobster bisque, and countless types of sushi. Oh, and bottomless mimosas too!

To walk off our food bellies we wandered around the casinos for a bit (I lost $20 in blackjack and that was the extent of my gambling) and then did some shopping at the Forum Shops. Like everything at Caesar's Palace, the decor was all classically-inspired, and there are plenty of shops for all price points. Travel tip: if you're looking to get a nice designer piece, Vegas is the place to do it because they have a lower sales tax!

The gang's all ready for Calvin Harris

That night we went out to Hakkasan nightclub at MGM Grand to see Calvin Harris perform a live set. It was really fun but ohmigod I don't think my feet have ever hurt so badly after a night out. We arrived around 10pm to make sure we could get in, but Calvin didn't go on until 1:30am, making for a lot of standing around. It was all worth it though because it was an amazing set, plus, I got to wear my brand new dress from Revolve!

Found a new dress at Urban Outfitters!
Honey Punch dress
Yum! Bleu cheese and arugula burger at Burgr, one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants
Soaking up the Vegas sun

The next afternoon we did some more exploring, checking out the Bellagio, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and the Paris hotel. For lunch we grabbed burgers at Burgr (make sure to get their onion rings!) and while waiting for a table I popped into Urban Outfitters and found this T-shirt dress I had been admiring!

Looks for the evening

Mr. Worldwide himself
All I can say is "Dale"
For our last night in Vegas we went to the Pitbull concert (yes, seriously). My friend is an unashamed true fan and while I agreed to go mostly because the rest of my friends bought tickets, I must admit, unironically, that it was an amazing show. What a man, that Mr. 305.

After Pitbull we went to Marquee back at the Cosmopolitan and danced the night away to Dash Berlin. Woke up the next morning with just enough time to catch our ride back to LA!

All in all, a pretty good week! I spent most of Sunday catching up on sleep, so obviously I had a fun time :)
